So... I do recaps of Mad Men for my blog, and am working on episode 3, "Tea Leaves" (I'm a little behind this season thanks to a vacation just after the season premiere).

So anyway, early in the episode, we see Betty Draper on the sofa, eating Bugles and reading the newspaper while a rerun of The Andy Griffith Show plays in the background. As best I can tell, Andy is on the phone and says

"Black hat, small mustache, 5 foot 9. That's him all right."

Then there's a knock at the door, which makes his next few words inaudible, but he continues:

"Uh no, no... I don't know why he stopped here in Mayberry."

I've tried every Google trick I can think of, trying to figure out which episode this is. Can anyone help? Much, much MUCH thanks in advance!

Rex

I'm not 100% on this, but my initial thought was "Guest of Honor", where they award the key to the city to a fellow that they later find out was a small-time crook.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0512493/

That the one you were thinking of?

It's 100% definitely Guest of Honor. Season 2 - episode 21.

OMG! Thanks so much, you guys! That is indeed the episode!

It seems like every Andy Griffith episode is on YouTube, and I was going though Wikipedia's episode list (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_The_Andy_Griffith_Show_episodes) on one monitor with YouTube open in the other, skimming through each episode! You guys just saved me all kinds of time!

Once again, THANKS! Can I give you guys credit in the recap?

I'm glad to help, too. It's not often my TAGS knowledge comes in handy... :) You're welcome to give credit, if you like.

The first five seasons of The Andy Griffith Show is my favorite TV comedy of all time.
